Blood Kin (Half-Light City Series #2) by M. J. Scott

Imagine a city divided. A city where human and Fae magic rests uneasily next to the vampire Blood and the shapeshifting Beasts. A city where a fragile peace is brokered by a treaty that set the laws for all four races…a treaty that is faltering day by day.

I didn’t plan on becoming a thief and a spy. But options are limited for the half-breed daughter of a Fae lord. My father abandoned me but at least I inherited some of his magic, and my skills with charms and glamours mean that few are as good at uncovering secrets others wish to hide. Right now the city has many secrets. And those who seek them pay so well…

I never expected to stumble across a Templar Knight in my part of the city. Guy DuCaine is sworn to duty and honor and loyalty—all the things I’m not. I may have aroused more than his suspicion but he belongs to the Order and the human world. So when treachery and violence spill threaten both our worlds, learning to trust each other might be the only thing that saves us.

But even if a spy and a holy knight can work together, finding the key to peace is never going to be easy…

It is so unsettling and infuriating to many of us, who appreciates real literary talent, that the authors chose language or situations that prohibit us adding their works to our libraries. I felt confident that a setting of the 1300's where most likely the words weren't used that it wouldn't be a major problem. Given the summary, I suspected there might be some crude slang but not the sickening profanity of debased sexual references. The story is adventurous, dramatic, imaginative, with an element of intrigue but the crude profanity kills the perfectness of it. The sexual references one perhaps can deal with since it doesn't go int explicit detail but the profanity is totally distasteful. The plot is in a unique setting of four different types of beings brought together through a treaty which some do not approve. Though the two main characters are from two different life styles and beliefs, their ultimate cause is the same - to keep the somewhat peace of the treaty. They are compelled to work together until the plan hits a major barrier. Holly has no choice but to betray the man she loves and respects. Guy has to face crushing betrayals. I won this and appreciate the effort to make these available to avid readers, but crushed I will be unable to keep or recommend this book.

What a let down. Felt like the author kept repeating the same things over and over again without adding anything to the story. The ending was wrapped up so quickly in the end because she spent to much time with the love, or should I say lust, scenes. The first book was soo much better.

This is just like the other thousands of romance books out there---different era, different characters, different situation maybe but the plot is always the same. The heroine/hero fall in love, deceive one (usually the female) or the other, the lies are exposed, one or the other martyrs themselves (usually always the female), then all is forgiven, problems solved and they live happily ever after. Even if the background story of the romance is good ( which this was) it is still a repeat romance. I wish there were more "pure" Urban Fantasy/Paranormal/Supernatural stories without angsty romance. I love a romantic relationship just as much as most but not where the tragic romance is the main focus instead of the great plotline being the focus. I REALLY wish that all stories with this type of romance would state as such in the bio of the book. I certainly would save time and money instead of wasting both by finding out AFTER I had purchased and read part of said book. If you a an angst-filled-romance lover, then this is a great book for you with a really good secondary plot.
